Sport Stacking is a fitness based sport that kids from all backgrounds and abilities can do. For the athlete and non-athlete alike, regardless if you are instructing eighth graders or kindergartners, sport stacking can be a great enhancement for your fitness routine. With over 70 fitness based activities, sport stacking helps to motivate kids to be active and fit. Teachers and parents also like sport stacking because it can be done at home. Much like a Scholastic book order encourages kids to read at home, a Group Order through Speed Stacks encourages fitness at home.
One of the comments we receive consistently from teachers, parents and school administrators is how sport stacking levels the playing field for their kids. Non-Athletic kids can now compete head to head with their more athletic counterparts. This significantly raises their self-esteem, motivating them to work harder in PE and be excited to participate. It's a WIN, WIN!
Today schools, teachers and parents are focused more than ever on academic achievement. Sport stacking not only promotes physical fitness, but also academic learning. Students that sport stack on a regular basis have shown increases in test scores and levels of concentration. This is achieved by students using both their right and left sides of their brain. When students sport stack they are crossing the "midline" of their bodies and developing new connections in their brains. These new connections help to spur brain growth which in turn promotes greater academic achievement. Please refer to our studies and articles below for more information.
As parents we always want the best for our kids academically and physically? You want your kids to be active after school, watching less TV or playing fewer video games but funds are tight. How can you bring PE home to your kids? Buying a basketball hoop would be good, but those are expensive and what do your kids do on cold days? Maybe your child doesn't like traditional sports! We understand! Kids of all ages, abilities and personalities love sport stacking because it is fun and challenging. Teachers love sport stacking because it motivates kids to be more active and fit. Parents love sport stacking because it is affordable and you can buy your child something that benefits their body, brain and spirit! You can participate in a Group Order through your school and buy Speed Stacks gear at a discount.
